About me

Who am I?

I’m a Christian writer and my penname is Margaret Terblanche. I live in Pretoria, South Africa, with my family and our dogs. In my free time (when I’m not hunched over behind a computer) I enjoy preparing to be a good housewife, doing ballet, playing viola and laughing at corny jokes.

What do I write?

Basically anything.

The novel I’m currently working on is a low fantasy novel (that is, fantasy without magic) and it’s part of a series of five books. My other big project at the moment is a spy thriller.

The short stories I occasionally publish on this blog, range from blood-and-thunder cowboy stories to…well, other stories that also involve lots of blood and thunder. What can I say? I like action.

You can also read my writer’s mission statement here.

What do I believe in?

I believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

What are a few random facts about me?


    • I like knives.
    • I’ve never been to school.
    • My favourite colour is yellow.
    • My favourite drink is water.
    • I can blow out air through my one eye.

How do you contact me?

You don’t.
